I know of at least one example currently in our cvs where we went from
a set of separate small patch files to one encompassing patch file.  I
think it was a diff from git. If we move to more advanced vcs are we
going to have a harder time keeping patches separated? Or is it just a
matter of education on how not to reach for the easy to produce mega
patch shortcut?
